Why COVID19 can’t get you anxious or depressed
Although one negative thought isn’t going to make a difference, ruminative, negative thinking does have a cumulative, mind-body effect, which eventually contributes to what we typically refer to as a down or depressed “mood.” If, however, negativity is coupled with fears and panic related to the COVID virus, the effect becomes amplified paving the way for depression and anxiety.
You need to know that there’s an emotional and physical price to pay for needless (reflexive) shabby thinking. Starting today, take responsibility–one thought at a time—STOP indulging your tendency towards negativity and/or fear and start recognizing how much better you feel.
And yes, shabby thinking is an indulgence.
Remember, COVID19 can’t make you feel anxious or depressed, you have to allow it to.
